Hello everybody! I hope you guys are well. Yesterday I decided to do some arts and crafts. It’s been awhile and I was simply in the mood, plus my daughter was taking her nap. It doesn’t get any better than that, unless you’re taking a nap as well, but I was never good at that so crafting it is. My first project involved a set of brass decorative keys and paint. I have been wanting to do this for a long time now so what better time than the present.
Here’s what I did:
I purchased this lovely set of keys from a catalog, Terry’s Village, a long time ago. You can check out their website for great, inexpensive home decor at terrysvillage.com.
Got my paint and brush ready. I chose a baby blue, but I’ve had this bottle for a while now so I was scared that the paint inside was bad, but a good shake revealed that all was good.
I wanted some of the brass to show so I didn’t paint the key completely. I let each key dry and then I painted the ring that held them together.
I love my new set of keys. I love the blue shade and the brass gives it an antique look. The painting process was actually quite calming, especially when there’s a two-year old napping away peacefully. 🙂
Take care all. Until next time…
